What makes University of Wollongong (UOW) students great is their love of learning. UOW is a place where academics and students from all over the world learn and discover every day, where hard work is rewarded with opportunity and where good ideas come to life.
This spirit has us ranked as one of the world’s best modern universities being ranked 22nd in the world in the QS Top 50 Under 50 Rankings.
UOW offers advanced study programs for high achievers. Their Dean's Scholar degrees give students the chance to have an academic mentor from their area of study and can potentially fast-track their degree.
Outside of study, you can immerse yourself in campus life. UOW has over 100 student-run clubs and societies and our award-winning UniBar attracts Australian and international live music acts. Wherever you turn you’ll find art galleries, market days, plays and live outdoor music.
